Engagement Ring Missing For More Than A Decade Found With A Garden Carrot Growing Inside It

Eighty-four years is a long time to be on God's green earth. It doesn't pay to hang on to your material possessions too much, as Mary Grams, 84, will tell you.

It was attached with carrot dramatically


If anything, the carrot had turned up around the ring, with the vegetable growing through the tiny piece of jewellery, forcing itself through it. Once the carrot had been cut away from the ring, though, Mary was in no doubt that it was hers. “I recognized it right away,” she told reporters.

It was lost when Mary was working on the farm.


Once a keen gardener, Mary assumed that she lost it pulling weeds in the garden of their home in the western province of Alberta. “We looked high and low on our hands and knees, we couldn’t find it. I thought for sure either they rototilled it or something happened to it,” she said.
